Well. This afternoon I am layering BB with Serge Lutens Fumerie Turque... (adjacent to one another not on top of one another) and the combination is NICE. (definitely sweeter than BB alone, and the smokey top of FT doesn't hurt the top of BB, but it is intense, so I'd suggest waiting for the heart of one before layering the other.)
Also had BB layered with Bandit yesterday, and that was interesting too. Not as sweet but the peppery Bandit and BB work very well together.
Edit:Later the drydown is complete and the combination is heavenly... The contrast and the "vibration" between BB's leathery and green drydown and the sweeter FT vanilla, beeswax, patchouli, are absolutely stunning.
